Certain plumbing projects require specialized knowledge. One of those areas is natural gas line plumbing. Most homeowners understand plumbing as a line of services dealing with water and sewer systems. But in fact, there is much more to the profession—and gas plumbing is one of the specialties in the field. Now that you know they exist, be sure to hire a true natural gas plumber for any projects involving gas lines in your Indianapolis area home.
Why Do I Need a Special Plumber for Natural Gas Lines?
Since pipes carrying natural gas are potentially more dangerous than water pipes if not properly installed, it makes sense to choose an experienced natural gas plumber to work at your central Indiana home.
A natural gas plumber is typically a licensed Indiana plumbing contractor through the Indiana Plumbing Commission. Natural gas plumbers are not typically journeymen plumbers and certainly not apprentice plumbers, who must work under supervision.
Any thoughts of gas fitting (gas plumbing) as a DIY project should be reconsidered immediately. Proceeding without training will compromise your personal safety, along with your family’s (and perhaps even your neighbors’) safety.
When Should I Call a Natural Gas Plumber?
Many projects around your home require the specialized training and experience of a licensed gas fitter. A natural gas plumber is responsible for installing, extending, and repairing natural gas lines and installing associated appliances. A natural gas plumber is trained to run gas lines for:
- Furnaces/HVAC systems
- Water heaters
- Clothes dryers
- Outdoor grills
- Hot tubs
- Gas leak repair
- And more
As you can see from this partial list, natural gas plumbers can work on projects in almost any room in your home—and on your patio or deck area outside. You may also need a gas plumber for larger projects. A gas fitter can advise you on the best way to re-route the gas piping, then install the new system to safely power your appliances if you are planning on:
- Building an addition to your house that will use gas heating
- Converting your fireplace to gas
- Remodeling and/or relocating your laundry room
- Or expanding the kitchen,
